Understanding IEPs


NPN Amy J.
Community Calendar

An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is designed to help children with a variety of needs including autism, developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, specific learning disabilities, speech or language impairments, and more. Although it is there to help students, parents often find the IEP process difficult to manage and understand, but NPN can help. If your child needs specialized services in school, or you are beginning to wonder if your child needs this type of support, come and learn about this process from experts. In this session you will learn what an IEP is, how it is designed to help students, and the 6 principals of IDEA. You will walk away with tips on how to be the best advocate for your student during the IEP meeting and other settings. There will be time for parents to ask questions at the end. 


Natasha Croff--Parent Involvement Specialist, CPS Office of Diverse Learner Supports+Services, and Kimberly Johnson, English Language Arts Principal Consultant at Illinois State Board of Education will be presenting.



When: Saturday, October 21, 12:30 pm -- 1:30 pm 

Where: Kennicott Park, 4434 South Lake Park Avenue

Who: FREE for everyone ($20 donation recommended)

This session will take place at NPN's Education & Community Fair at Kennicott Park in Hyde Park.
